Plot:
The zombie apocalypse hits Australia and shit hits the fan really quickly. Barry’s (Jay Gallagher) entire life is blown to pieces and everything that remains is his sister Brooke (Bianca Bradey) who manages to survive the first onslaught, only to be captured by sinister soldiers. Barry teams up with Benny (Leon Buchill) and a couple of other guys to try and rescue Brooke.

Wyrmwood has quite a few creative and a little unhinged fresh ideas to add to the zombie lore. Unfortunately it does little with them and ultimately they are drowned out by the sheer mass of tired, old, rotten clichés the film is built on.
